I've recently been put in charge of one of the rescue horses at our barn. She has terrible feet. I've been cleaning them out every day but when she first came to me I couldn't even tell what was manure and dirt and what was her foot. As I started picking them out, a ton of black (what I assumed at the time to be old poop) was deep in her collateral grooves. Upon further research, I learned that a symptom of thrush is black discharge so maybe it was that? It smelt rank whatever it was. Anyways, here are some pictures I took yesterday after a through cleaning. Her front feet are much worse and seem to be causing her more discomfort than her hind feet. Any tips on how to help cure her feet too would be appreciated! Thanks!
